The majority of us have some moles and, generally, they are benign. They are a form of pigmented naevi that are commonly found on the face and body, varying in size and colour from pale tan to brown to blue/black and often developing deep terminal hairs in them because of a well-developed blood supply. Generally it is best to avoid treating moles, but if yours is causing you severe distress it may be able to be treated with diathermy. You should always consult your GP before mole reduction treatment

It is possible to visibly reduce the appearance of a mole using diathermy.
